I`ll guess most of you will never visit Norway, but let me show you a couple of photos from my ancestors place; Lofoten…

Fairytale Lighting

ImageA couple of weeks ago I noticed this special light on the sky, so I ran outside with my camera trying to capture this fairytale lighting. Notice the light post; for me it has this Narnia feeling about it. Beautiful scenic nature has always been a good source for my imagination.

Making the most of one piece of clothing

When I went shopping the other day, I was looking for a nice top that I could use on Christmas but also on other occasions, as it`s such a waste for me to buy beautiful dresses that`ll only be worn once a year. In addition, I`m also one of those who freeze all the time. I`ve often been seen covered by a blanket on a summer`s day! Which is why I prefer using a pair of nice pants or a skirt combined with a nice top on special occasions. As you already know I did find one beautiful, budget friendly, blue sequin top with a 3/4 sleeve; which got me thinking about different ways of wearing it, with an emphasis on everyday use. So I found a similiar looking top on Polyvore and played around for a little while and here`s the result.

Special occasion; this is how I intend to use the top on Christmas Eve ImageGoing out for dinnerImageA comfy everyday look, that can be used both at work and universityImage

What do you think? How would you make the most of one item of clothing?

Budget Friendly winter Activity; Cross country skiing

Image

There`s a saying in my country; “Norwegians are born with skis on their feet”, and although not everyone is a good skier, I think I can say that most of us own a pair of skis. From we`re small children we learn to ski, and most elementary schools organize yearly ski-days. It`s also a really popular family activity; especially going to cabins in the mountains from January-march, to go skiing. It`s something that everyone can learn quite quickly, and it`s both fun and easy!

If you`re looking for a budget friendly winter activity that you can enjoy alone, with friends or with family, cross country skiing is something I can really recommend. If you have a dog, I`ll bet it`ll happily join you in the ski-slopes! It does cost a little to get the equipment, but once you`ve got it; it can last for many, many years. You can get skis and poles cheaper by buying the equipment off-season, or buy it used.  And here`s the best part. When you`ve got it, it doesn’t cost you anything to use it. As long as you`ve got a suitable area for skiing you`re good to go. It`s also a very good way to exercise during winter!

Pack a backpack with a thermos full of hot chocolate and a camera, and go explore wonderful nature scenes.

Have you tried cross country skiing?

Petrified

I’m petrified. I have this awful multiple choice exam that I’m on my way to. To calm my nerves I try to think of happy things, such as my family’s dog having a great time, playing in the snow
